The NBCA Junior Choir will be performing at the 2018 Christmas Party for Special Children.
Christmas Party for Special Children – this gig has presented itself to the Junior boys in the past and they’ve had a wonderful time. We have again been invited to participate this year!
The idea of the Christmas Party is to gather children who are sick, terminally ill, physically and mentally challenged or disadvantaged through circumstance and help them to forget the troubles for a few hours.
This is an exciting performance opportunity for the Junior choristers, their first gig – Ms Brook, Miss Ferwerda and Mr Taylor have every confidence the boys will do the National Boys Choir of Australia proud as they sing under the Choir banner. Parents, you can help with this by ensuring ALL boys know and are confident with the repertoire.
Staff Attending Ms Brook, Miss Ferwerda, Mr Taylor, Mrs Justine de Jonge, Mr Seedy
and Mrs Eldred (0407 567 341).
